The total mangrove area in Brazil is one of the largest in the world, where austral limits/borders are in the State of Santa Catarina (Southern Brazil). During a survey about mangrove mycobiota on Santa Catarina Island, there were also collected and identified species of myxomycetes: Stemonitis fusca, S. splendens and Physarum pezizoideum. All specimens were gathered on Avicennia schaueriana.These species were collected for the first time in Brazilian mangroves and these are the first records of myxomycetes on A. schaueriana.
